POSSIBLE ACTIVITIES

CORCOVADO PARK TOUR

Our most popular tour takes guests on a day trip to Los Patos to enjoy incredible views, pristine forest and the rich flora and fauna of our region. Walk in the footprints of the jaguars, see where all four species of monkeys live, or cross paths with wild pigs. This is an eco-challenge that will have you in awe of the neotropics, capturing the essence of what the National Geographic considers to be “the most biologically intense place on earth”. Our location outside of Corcovado National Park allows guests the option to take a taxi, a 4×4 truck or with our transportation, covering 8 km up to the entrance. From the entrance it is around 6km walk inside the park. You will enjoy a tasty picnic lunch at the edge of small waterfall, where you can relax and reenergize before your descent to Danta Corcovado Lodge. Be prepared for a rigorous hike over steep terrain.

This is an adventure well worth the challenge!

JUNGLE NIGHT WALK

This tour will heighten your senses as you become accustomed to your surroundings, discovering hidden treasures beneath every leaf, and even pausing a moment to take in the complete darkness with our flashlights off.

INDIGENOUS

Thanks to our proximity to the Indigenous Territory Guaymí, we offer our guests a rich experience in culture, history and nature. Next to Corcovado National Park, we find a family that opens the doors of their house, before we enter, we must purify our body and soul with its ritual to start learning.

Once entering their territory, they will show their lifestyle and will tell their story and beliefs. Also learn about medicinal plants and their art with natural products, giving a little tour of all-natural gardens surrounding the house of this family.

This will be an experience that you’ll never forget!
